Health and Wellbeing Cover
 

Given that every child is both unique and a competent learner from birth, it is crucial that educators encourage and support each child to thrive in every area of development at their own pace and in their own individual ways.

Children’s health is an integral part of their emotional, mental and social wellbeing. This book provides a purposeful guide to best practice, inviting educators to reflect on the three main strands of:

  • growing and developing
  • physical wellbeing
  • emotional wellbeing

Where the environment and practices support the wellbeing of children, families and educators, then the provision for children will be better and more successful in its outcomes. This book aims to address this by exploring the issues and providing checklists that consider the best possible experiences and outcomes for the child, alongside the experiences and outcomes for families and educators.

Pages: 57 | Ages: 0-5
